Her key stories in the speech was about the hum in her life and the simple question her daughter asked.

Over my past three years as an RA, I have always been interested in hearing about and learning about the experiences of other freshmen women RAs. From what I have heard from them, everyone has a different experience — some positive and some negative. I think that this is largely due to the fact that the job is multi-faceted.
